2013 Rubi Wheels - How much are they worth?

Whats a fair price on a whole set (5) of these? I ran across a set on CL and I'd like to know what is fair.

Thanks from a TJ dude!

Assuming you're not buying them to put on your TJ?

But I have no clue...Takeoffs are usually in the $100/wheel range for fairly new ones. Not sure on the '13s, though...ebay says about $150-175/wheel.

Nah they're for a future vehicle but this seemed like a good deal. And you just confirmed my feeling. Anyone else want to validate that price?

My sister just lifted her Rubicon and put on 35's. She tried to trade in her take-offs with only 6,000 miles to the shop that did the work but they didn't want them. I offered her $800 for them, I figured I could put them on my Jeep in the winter. She wants $1,000. I'm still thinking about it.

These are just the wheels but they're priced less than the above stated $150-175 per wheel. For that matter, they're less than $100 per wheel...

If they are in good shape I'd say that's a good deal.

At that price, if I was in the market, I'd jump all over them if they're new pulls.

Why not just tell use how much the guy wants so we can tell you if we think its a good deal. Another thing to consider since you are just buying the wheels(idk what you plan to put them on) but the back spacing is not the best.

Yeah, if they are under $100 each, I'd go for it. Rubi wheels and tires together, brand new usually only go for about $800-$1000.

Decent deal is ~$1,000. I keep my Rubi stock for the sole reason that takeoff wheels are so freaking cheap, so I watch CL for sets regularly and will pick them up when I find deals then just store them in my garage for when they are needed. People (crazily) ask as much as $1,700, but those undoubtedly end up staying on CL for weeks until they drop the price. I picked up my last set of 5 (w/o TPMs) with less than 500 miles for $800. I'd do $1,000 if it included TPMs.

That would be a good deal in my area.

I'm passing since I literally have no clue when I'm getting said future vehicle. However they're 400 on the Charlotte CL if anyone wants a good deal for themselves.

I ended up selling mine with 5k on them for 900, had to drive 2 hours to meet the guy. Took me 2 or 3 months to get that much for them.
